The nRF9160 Feather: Coming Soon!

Air Quality Wing Board

Hey!

Welcome to this landing page.

You’re here because someone told you about my upcoming release of the nRF9160 Feather.

So first, I want to say, welcome!

There’s not much here, yet, but let me tell you a little more about what you can expect to do with this board. I even made a handy diagram that points out all the good stuff!

Now, for the details:

  • This board can be powered several ways. The most popular way to power Feather boards is by using the USB port. This board is no exception. It works well across both USB and LiPoly batteries. You even have the option to disconnect the battery charger for a safe connection to primary cells!
  • The board is designed from the ground up to be power efficent at the most used power state. standby. That’s right, if you’re developing something that’s battery powered, your most used state will usually be standby mode. As of this writing the estimated current draw in this state should be about 10µA. That’s approximately 1.7 years on a 150mAH cell!
  • Speaking of power, this board also has a fully fledged DC/DC Buck Boost. That whether your input voltage is 5.5 or 2.8V you’ll get a nice stable 3.3V at the output.
  • This board also sports some external flash for storing your application data.
  • Finally, but not least, the nRF9160. I’ve been watching this part very carefully since the CEO had it locked in a mysterious black case years back. It’s here and it’s real and the module is half the price of other modules. I won’t bore you with all the technical details. (Technical details get you excited? Go here.) Needless to say, it’s awesome.
